Crestron, in collaboration with Intel, has developed a network encoder (DM-NVX-D80-IoAV) that, using the Philips PDS Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) port, will redefine the new Philips large format displays in terms of a true “certified solution”, because it allows the immediate distribution of 4K audio/video content over any network.
The result of this EMEA-wide collaboration is to add new operational capabilities and increased functionality to Philips’ entire range of Large Format Displays, particularly for the corporate market.
“Philips confirms a commitment to innovation that looks to the future needs of customers – comments Simone Gagliardi, Sales Director for Philips Professional Display Solutions in Italy, announcing the success of the agreement locally –. This collaboration offers enormous benefits to both integrators and end users, adding real value to the already high quality of signage solutions”.
An intelligent, complete and scalable solution
The Crestron DM-NVX decoder connects to the Philips OPS port and is powered by the display itself, eliminating cumbersome cables and power supplies, reducing installation costs and providing an integrated, seamless network AV solution. The DM-NVX is also designed to make it easier to mount displays flush with the wall.
This intelligent technology can also be integrated with the IOT-based Crestron XiO Cloud platform, which allows for monitoring, management and control of each display from a single location. It also allows the entire system to be deployed without programming.
Fred Bargetzi, CTO of Crestron, adds: “Thanks to Philips’ proven expertise in high-quality innovation and display solutions, we were able to best develop our 1 Gb, 4K/60 AV-over-IP solution by connecting it directly to the OPS slots built into the displays. Furthermore, in addition to offering a high-quality, flexible and easy-to-use display network, DM-NVX improves the security levels of the Crestron XIO Cloud platform based on Microsoft Azure technology”.
An AV network with DM-NVX is a complete, scalable solution that can also connect audio, USB and controllers and is the only network solution that always delivers a flawless image over any network. Designed with interoperability and flexibility in mind, the DM-NVX-D80-IoAV – integrated with Philips’ OPS displays – delivers customised solutions to suit any application.
